Correspondence. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents.] DUST AND TYPHOID. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

Correspondence. [The Editor does, not hold himself respon sible for the opiniotis' expressed: by cor respondents.] DUST AND TYPHOID. * TO THE :EDITOR. SIR.-I notice in the annual report of Dr Visser, the chief officer of public health in Johannesburg, he attributes the high per centage of deaths frbm' typhoid and pieu mo'ia to the prevalence .of dust, it being a propagator of zyniotic diseases. JIn view of this and the existence of such diseases in our midst, I think it absolutel imperative the town Council should take immediate steps to water our knain street at least. I feel ertain that if the fearful atmosphere we are at present living in is not filled with deadly germs, it is injurious to health and the matter demands instant attention.--- am, &c., K' oo :i n . 1~6,.

Mining News. BLOCK 45. 478oz PER TON. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

Mining News. (BY OUR MINING REPORTER.) BLOCK 45. 4780oz PER TON. A sample of the. dull looking partly oxidised telluride of gold ore now being raised from the 100ft level of Block 45 was assayed on Saturday by Messrs Tinley and Holroyd, and gave magnificent returns. The free gold in the stone was first extracted and equalled Soz 2dwt per ton, and the stone was then smelted and gave a return equal to 478cz per ton. This marvellous return was secured from the most unattractive looking stone ever mined in the district, and it would probably be a good thing if specimens of the reef were exhibited at the next meeting of the Mine Managers' Association, so that all the mining men of the field could form some idea of the class of stone in which the telluride of gold has been met with. In addition the show would be rendered more attractive still if samples of the reef from the 270ft 'level of the Craesus, which carries the telluride of gold, were also on view. It would also be a splendid adv...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

An ant has been known to hold suspended a silver pencil case 3000 times its own weight, the feat representing a man holding a weight of 50 tons suspended froin his jaws. Here is a reminiscence of Sir William Fraser :-An enigma connected, in his own opinion, with Napoleon Ill, and known as " The Carpet-Bag Mystery," has never been solved. A carpet-bag was found in the early morning on one of. the. piers of Waterloo Bridge: it contained a number of hliian limbs belonging to the same body, without the head ; some clothes were there, but nothing" to indicate the name of the person who had been murdered. From the place in which body was found it was conjectured not un reasonably that, so far,from wishing to hide the crime, the.object of its perpetrators had been to attract public attention to it. It. had obviously been carefully lowered from the parapet to the position in which it was found. Some indications pointed to the theory that the murdered man was a foreigner. I know that it was ...

WARNING TO PROSPECTORS. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

WARNING TO PROSPIECTOS. LTo THE EDITOR.] SIt,--If you would kindly Insert the fol lowing I should feel obliged, as it is another warning to prospectors and milieras'upon this field not to trust too implicitly to dish tests. A gentleman brought me in a sample of ore for assay for gold, and he received the return nil. He then told me that he had tried several prospects and, found colours, and had expected a return of 2oz to the ton. Having some of the sample left I panned it off and found what appeared certainly to be free gold, but upon further tests with the microscope and blowpipe I found these s8o called colours to be ' native oxide of lead" or the same thing as the letharge of com dmerce. This oxide of lead occurs in flakes redder in colour than gold, but it will hang back in the dish on account of its heavy specific gravity, and give what appears to be a good prospect. If treated by the blowpipe it will give a malleable button of pure lead. I am, &c., ARTHUR J. HOLROYD: ...

The Overland Journey. MENZIES, June 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

The Overland Journey. (BY TELEGRAPH.) MEN?IEs, June 3. Mr S. G. Hubbe, leader of the exploring party fitted out by the Governmpent of South Australia, arrived at Menzies "to'day.' Mr Hubbe left Oodnadatts on November 23 last year with five men and 14 camels, and they have all been brought safely through. There was no sickness amongst the party, except with Mr Hubbe himself, who was indisposed for a few days through dysentery. Six camels got poisoned, but recovered after leaving Owatinua Springs, where the South Australian triangulation terminated, and from whence Mr Hubbe sent his last advice to his Government. Mr Hubbe took bearings at each camping place and has preserved a complete chart of his track. He estimates the total distance to Menzies as 1039 miles, but some unnecessary distance was traversed in search for Water.: After striking Mount Aloysius, Mr Hubbe followed Sir John Forrest's tracks from Crowther's Springs to Alexandra Springs. The latter, Sir John declared to be per...

TELEORAPHI C. NEWCASTLE, June 5. The Miners' L'elegates Board to day received a letter from Mr Brunker stating that the colliery proprietors had intimated to him that they preferred to deal direct with'the miners without the intervention of a third party. The Delegates thereupon carried. a resolution requesting the mine owners to grant 'aconference on the matters in dispnte. A motion was proposed to ask the, mine owners to grant .the terms offered at a recent conference, but it was not carried.

CABLEGRAMS. TRANSVAAL AFFAIRS. LONDON, June 3. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

CABLE i RAMS. TRANSVAAL AFFAIRS. LoNnoN, June 3.: The wife of President Kruger is re ported to be seriously ill. Special prayers have been offered up in all the Transvaal churches for her recovery. A movement is on foot in the Rand to add a wing to the hospital at Johan nesburg, as. an expression of gratitude for the clemency shown by the Trans vaal authorities towards the Reformers convicted of treason against the Re public. It is understood that President Kruger wishes that the sentences on the four leaders of the Reformers Colonel Rhodes, and Messrs Phillips, Hammond, and Hayes-should be re duced to the payment of heavy fines. The other members of the Executive are stated to be afraid that if this course were adopted they would be regarded as mercenary, and consequently prefer that the convicted men should be imprisoned for five years. LONDO', June 4. The Transvaal authorities continue to make active preparations for hostilities. German engineers are at present engaged rapidly fo...

The Robbery of Captain Begelhole. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

The Robbery of Captain Begelhole. The Leader writes :-" From North Fitzroy comes a story of assault and robbery of an unusually sensational character The victim of this crime is Captain William John Begelhole, the late manager of Bayley's Reward claim, Coolgardie. At 11 o'clock on Tuesday, Captain Begelhole, who is residing at 104 Bennett-street, North Fitzroy, travelled on the dummy of a Brunswick street tram from the. city as far as St George's road. Here he alighted, noting at the time that three men, who had been seated on the opposite side of the tram dur ing the journey, also got off at the same place. Captain Begelhole proceeded along Park-street towards his home. but as soon as he got well out of the bright light which shines from the main thoroughfare, three men, whom he suspects to be those who were on the tram, came rapidly out of the darkness behind him, and before he was aware of their intentions one of them had caught him by the throat. Another grasped his arms tightly...

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

Personal. Lord Edward Cecil, who has been granted leave to take service in the Egyptian army for the operations in the Soudan, is Lord Salisbury's fourth son. He is over 6ft Bin in height, and has an enthusiastic love of military duties. The German Emperor has .been up Vesuvius, and greatly enjoyed the expedition. He was greatly impressed by Vesuvius. No body will be surprised at that. The volcano and its visitor are essentially sympathetic. Great things are done, says a poet, " when men and mountains meet." Mr A. J. Balfour's seat, Whittinghame House, East Lothian, was acquired by his family in 1817. In the ancient part of the structure the Earls of March held baronial court 600 years ago. In one of its rooms Morton and his confederates plotted the blowing up in` ~din?t ii h oftnQueeyn"sM " ys husband, Darnley. It was one of the many absurd stories told: of Marshall 'McMahon, that, on learning a convict had gone to Melbourne, he exclaimed, " We must write to Washington at once." Up...

The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY. JUNE 11, 1896. IN yesterday's issue, particulars re ceived by cable from London, iwere published of the first serious engage ment between the Anglo-Egyptian ex pedition advancing on Dongola and the Dervishes. The result was a decisive v;ctory for the invading troops, who lost only 66 men, whilst 1000 of their op ponents were killed. Mr Balfour has admitted that the present Government will not be satisfied until the Soudan has been re-conquered and the work accomplished, for which Gordon sacri ficed his life. Nothing definite has been announced as to the intentions of the authorities after the combined British and Egyptian forces reach Dongola. It may be that further pro gress will be delayed there with a view of asserting Egyptian supremacy over the country gradually, or the expedition may proceed immediately to Khartoum, and the administration of the affairs of that portion of Africa commenced at once. Much, no doubt, will depend on circumstances...

The Government Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

The Government Policy. SPEAKING at a banquet at Northam ;ast week tendered to Mr Throssell, M.L.A., by his constituents, the Premier gave what may be regarded as a for, cast of the Governor's speech at the opening of Parliament on the 7th July next. The guest of the evening delivered an ad dress that was a very appropriate intro duction to the policy of reform advo cated by Sir John. Mr Throssell clearly showed, though not intWtiQnally, the unfairness and the inutility of the high tariff duties which so heavily burden the mass of the 'peeIle. He candidly admitted that fora score of years to come the agriculturists would not produce sufficient for the require ments of the colony and that there was not a roller mill in the colcny paying expenses, because they had to import all their wheat. This is an important admission, coming as it does from the representative of an agricultural district, who shculd be an authority on the sub ject, and proves conclusively the ab surdity. and the inj...

THE FRANCE-RAYNBIRD PROSPECTING SYNDICATE. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 11 June 1896

THE FRANCE-RAYNBIRD PROSPECT ING SYNDICATE. We have been shown some stone by Mr A. Porter, secretary for the above syndicate, from two leases taken up by the prospectors in.the Lake Lefroy district, which shows gold freely all through. The leases are im mediately south of the Bass and Flinders gold mine property, and within 200 yards of the leases pegged out by Mr S. Peacre, and which have been taken over by Messrs Gray and Moir on behalf of the Brookman Pros pecting syndicate. The reef, which is com posed of ferruginous quartz, ironstone, and gossan, carries nice free gold, and runs right through the property. Before Mr France re turned to Kalgoorlie to place the properties before the syndicate, a shaft was sunk 8ft, and the prospectors were rewarded by seeing a fine reef from 4ft to 4ft Gin wide opened up. This syndicate is very fortunate in securing such valuable properties in a district which is so well known and convenient.
